Usain Bolt scores twice on first professional start

Usain Bolt controls the ball during the pre-season match between the Central Coast Mariners and Central Coast Football

Speaking after the match, Bolt spoke of his delight in netting his first goals in professional football: "My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling".

"I'm here to prove to the world, as I said, that I can be a footballer", Bolt said during a press conference on Friday, according to an ESPN video.

Here are the videos of the two goals.

Already this year, the world's fastest man has trained with Norwegian club Stromsgodset, German club Borussia Dortmund and South African club Sundowns.

Bolt doubled his tally minutes after the first strike by tapping in from close range following a mixup between a Macarthur defender and the goalkeeper. "I've been improving quickly", he said.

Usain Bolt doesn't consider himself a footballer yet and doubts remain over his ability to earn an A-League contract with Central Coast, despite bagging his first brace. "I've just got to continue improving".

"You've got to be happy for him".

Bolt was adamant he would be ready if required for the opening round of the A-League next week.




"Slight improvement if you want to say that but his touch is still very poor", Bosnich, now a Fox Sports commentator, said during the match.

"He looked pretty exhausted after 15-20 minutes".

With the A-League starting next week, Bolt is hoping the Mariners will soon provide some clarity on his prospects at the club.

The Scotland star, who scored five goals for Rovers in nineteen games during a spell at the club in 2006, chipped the ball forward for Bolt who then ran on and slotted past the keeper.

McCormack plays alongside Bolt at Central Coast Mariners.

Only time will tell whether Bolt truly has what it takes because Friday's game was only a pre-season friendly, though there's no denying he's getting better and better. "I've learnt how to set my body and where to place the ball".

Bolt was denied the chance of a hat-trick when coach Mike Mulvey hooked him with just over 10 minutes to go.
